Ooooooops

I admit it: I’m a tad bit outspoken. Okay, I’m a lot outspoken. I don’t hold back. I’m used to my mouth getting me into trouble occasionally, and I’ve gotten a lot better about biting my tongue. Honestly, I really have. So imagine my surprise when a comment was recently posted to an old entry of mine…..

Why?
{excerpt}
On a completely unrelated subject, I stumbled across this tonight, and I am still reeling in horror. Can anyone, anyone at all, please explain why this is okay? I find it to be an insult of the highest order to all things literary. I never thought I’d stumble across a book that I would consider burning, but it appears that one such title exists, after all. To top it off, the illustrious author dedicated the book to none other than the Bard himself. As if this weren’t enough, there’s also one (it’s part of a series!!! called Bard’s Blood—can you feel my pain?) titled A Midsummer Night’s Scream (on a side note: why the hell am I not published yet?). Please put an end to such literary massacres. Help me help you.

Then the following comment was left two days ago……

Hi.
It’s the author of the Bard’s Blood books, David Bergantino. If it’s any consolation, the dedication to Shakespeare at the beginning of #1 wasn’t my idea. Didn’t even know it was there until it hit the shelves; I dedicated the book to a friend. That Shakespeare dedication is tacky.

While I stand behind the message, I should probably point out that I don’t really endorse book burning. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go eat my other foot…..

    As Britney and Paris Hilton would tell you, you have to watch what you say when you’re a celebrity. 😉

    Second that!

    On second thought: Foot never taste good…I never get used to it! You’d think…but NO. *:D

    Ouch. It’s real cool that he’s a good sport about it, though. 🙂

    I think it’s awesome that you were honest with your opinion and that he was honest with his response. Personally, I find most dedications to the Bard to be a bit much and I love the personal dedications instead. 😉
